Starting in Fribourg

I was over in Switzerland on Monday and Tuesday and travelling down to Fribourg, well Marly to be precise, for my 3rd interview. At the end of the interview I was offered the job. So I have returned just to think things over but I am 90% in favour of the move.

By the way I am Irish and I hope to live in the city centre, as I am 32 and single.

So many Irish or other expats around Fribourg and any in my situation

So many things to do now at both ends!!!

Hi I've just moved to Fribourg! It's lovely. I'm not single though or Irish. I'm Scottish and married! Good luck with the decision. What have you got to lose??!!

Re: Starting in Fribourg

Congrats on your new job, I live in VD and its so lovely here not same situation 28 married, 3 kids but would think if you are working this gives you a chance to meet new people in your work environment, find places to go etc.
I wasnt sure about coming beforehand but after only 3 months i would never go back to live in the UK. I looked it as i would rather regret coming and go 'home' than wonder and regret not doing it.
Good luck with whatever you decide

Re: Starting in Fribourg

Kilns, congrats on getting the job in Marly. As I said in your earlier thread, a good place to meet English speakers is Paddy Reilly's Irish pub on Grand Place in Fribourg. The assistant manager there is Irish and there are a fair few British, Irish, Aussie etc regulars.
